Comet the Unicorn – Just in time for Unicorn Day

Happy Unicorn Day!

This one was quite the adventure to make! Having had quite the time making Apollo, I just had to make Projectarian’s other patterns! Of course a pattern sale just solidified that plan. Then being the yarn hoarder that I am, I also had yarn to burn through.

This particular one took me almost 3 weeks to make! The most time consuming part for me was the hair! After a few strands, I find I have to put it down and come back after a day or two. I don’t think the photos do the hair justice though. Using a “striping” yarn was definitely the right choice, and is now a must for any next Comets. This effect would definitely have been more difficult to achieve if I were to use solid colored yarn.

Materials and tools used:

  • Crochet pattern from Projectarian
  • Yarn
    • Red Heart Super Saver in Aran Fleck, Black, and Pool
    • Red Heart With Love in Baroque Stripe, Papaya, and White
    • Knit Picks Brava Worsted in Cornflower and Clarity

Moogly’s Leaping Stripes Line

Tamara Kelly from Moogly recently released a new item in her Leaping Stripes design, the Mersmerizing Mini Bag!

Mine came out to a cute size of 8×11 inches. Small enough to put valuables in for trips to the beach, or as a dress-up accessory for your little cutie!

Mesmerizing Mini Bag

The pattern is very easy to understand, as always. Once you get the hang of this stitch, you can easily get into a rhythm and finish up this project quickly. This stitch can also be made as a throw/blanket, a larger bag, and even a hat. All of these can be found in the Mooglyblog website.

Want one but don’t crochet? This bag is available my shop for ordering and customization!
